Anyways, here's where I'm getting stuck at. The ABIT NF7 has a winbond bios chip, W39V040AP(LPC), size 512. I'm trying to hotflash in a biostar board, an M7NCG 400 v7.2, and it's bios chip is a PMC, PM49FL002 (LPC/FWH).
At first I couldn't get it to work at all with awdflash, then I found out about uniflash. I gave it a shot, and it properly detected by chip types, and would start to flash my corrupt winbond chip, but the system would lock up near the end. I then realize uniflash says it might not work with nforce2 chipsets.
So I searched for more help, and found out that awdflash may work with the /qi or /f options. Well, I used /qi first, and it actually claimed to have flashed the entire bios, however the NF7 still refused to POST. So I tried again with the /f option, it also appeared to have flashed, but same deal, NF7 wouldn't POST.
Then I ended up here, reading a post claiming that FWH chips can't be flashed in non-FWH motherboards. Then I read a contradicting post saying that all nforce2 based boards support FWH.
So now I have a few questions about this whole bios chip stuff.
Should it be possible to do what I'm trying to do?
What the hell is FWH/LPC?
If I buy a new bios chip (if mine is dead) will any PLCC chip work as long as it can hold 512?
Thanks for any help.
